Ceragon Networks Reports Third Quarter 2012 Financial Results

PARAMUS, New Jersey, October 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Ceragon Networks Ltd. (NASDAQ: CRNT), the premier wireless backhaul specialist today reported results for the third quarter which ended September 30, 2012.

Revenues for the third quarter of 2012 reached $118.0 million, up 2% from $116.1 million for the third quarter of 2011, and down 1% from $119.1 million in the second quarter of 2012.

Net loss in accordance with US Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) for the third quarter of 2012 was $(2.7) million or $(0.07) per basic share and diluted share, compared to net loss of $(6.7) million in the third quarter of 2011, or $(0.19) per basic share and diluted share.

On a non-GAAP basis, net income for the third quarter, excluding (a) $1.4 million of equity-based compensation expenses, (b) $0.9 million amortization of intangible assets, (c) $2.9 million inventory step up related to the Nera acquisition and (d) $0.8 million of changes in pre-acquisition indirect tax positions, was $3.3 million, or $0.09 per basic share and diluted share. Non-GAAP net income for the third quarter of 2011 was $0.6 million, or $0.02 per basic and diluted share (please refer to the accompanying financial tables for reconciliation of GAAP financial information to non-GAAP).

Gross margin on a GAAP basis in the third quarter of 2012 was 31.0% of revenues. Gross margin on a non-GAAP basis was 34.5% of revenues.

Operating loss on a GAAP basis in the third quarter of 2012 was $(1.3) million. On a non-GAAP basis operating profit was $4.7 million.

Cash and cash investments at the end of the quarter were $48.6 million.

  "We are pleased to achieve a gross margin near our target and reach an operating profit margin of 4%," said Ira Palti, President and CEO of Ceragon. "We are making excellent progress toward our profitability goal.

"We remain optimistic about the business because we are well-positioned in an attractive sector that is likely to enjoy numerous growth drivers for years to come, but we are not immune to macroeconomic factors that are causing the second half of the year to be slower than originally expected.  After a dramatic pickup in bookings to record levels in Q2, we experienced a reversal in the order pattern in Q3. Although a portion of this change is accounted for by some large orders being delayed until Q4, due to the macroeconomic environment, we expect Q4 revenues to decline sequentially. With operators showing extreme caution regarding spending, sales cycles are lengthening and we are assuming no improvement from Q4 levels as we move into 2013.
